be to the opposition, that president assad does enjoy support from some courtney in -- ordinary syrians. many centers are on touched by violence. our correspondent has been to one such city. >> another day dawns on the mediterranean. the only fighting on this part of the syrian coast is between friends on that jet skis. welcome. it is long a place of holiday for syrians. now they are coming here in search of refuge. on the streets here, there is an eased you do not find many places anymore. i arranged to meet a group of students at a popular cafe. the come from syria felt many ethnic and religious groups -- they come from syria from many ethnic and religious groups. but there is no attention around this table. these friends call themselves one big family. it is hard to believe war is raging about an hour's drive away. >> it is a fantastic place. i like my town. >> what do you think about them saying it is too dangerous to come to syria? >> no, no. you can stay in this place. no, nothing. >> nothing happens. there is no problem here. may be like -- they say there is a problem in damascus, for example.
proceed no. >> ellen book tv the rise of bashar al assad in it syria, the face that many in the weight -- west said that he would implement reforms and the syrian ruler is the group turned toward repression and violence. this is just under an hour. >> tonight we have a program with david lashed. a professor of middle eastern studies and history at the senate study of a texas. and david has been going to syria i believe 23 years. >> 1989. twenty-three years ago. >> started three years. some experience in that country. the reason i am excited to have and talk to us tonight. david got to know bashar al assad having spent a lot of time talking to him, which is pretty unique for an american command academic a particular. david broder a book in 2005 which held out great hope for the future of syria. if you recall, there were is some sense that he would be a reformer in the syria after his father died. discovered that is not the case, and he has no written another book called the fall of the house of assad. so we're going to talk a bit about that tonight. my first question is going to be quit
, when the mullahs in iran were attacking their people. we should not have called the share assad a reformer when he was putting guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, for democracy, for individual rights and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does when we quiv kate on our values, when we show that we are fighting our own defense t makes us more weak t projects weakness. when we look weak our adversaries are much more will to -- >> with all due respect that is a bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so. >> not a single thing he said is accurate. first of all -- >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, the lecture on embassy security, the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he even knew that our ambassador was killed was out making a political statement that was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this weakness, i don't
they obtain arms to defeat al assad's tanks. how do you make sure those weapons don't get into the hands of terrorists or al qaeda? >> well, wolf, this is part of making sure that we're shaping events, as opposed to just being at the mersy of events. it means that we would have intelligence resources. we would also be working with our friends in the region, particularly the saudis as well as the turks that are closely involved in syria. we work together with them to identify voices within syria that are reasonable voices, that are moderate voices, that's not al qaeda. perhaps provide them with funding, some other supports would include as you indicate weapons so they'll be able to defend themselves. they could come from the turks or the saudis, but the key thing is not to just sit back and hope things work out well but to recognize iran as playing a major role in syria, and we, through our friends in the region, must also be playing a role to help shape what's happening there and make sure that we rid ourselves of mr. assad and don't have in his place chaos or some kind of organization w
that is insufficient to paul ryan and here's a mon taj of how that sounded. >> we wouldn't refer to bashar assad as a reformer. we're not projecting weakness abroad. we shouldn't have called bashar assad a reformer. this invites weakness. >> the bashar assad a reformer. that was his only line on syria policy. largely was rhetoric kalt. now when you talk the three hot spots in the world, not necessarily in the entire world, which is iran, the war in afghanistan and syria, there wasn't as far as i can tell any policy disagreement that they were leveling. take a look. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. >> thank hechks we had these sanctions in place. >> what more would they do other than put american boots to the ground. >> nobody is proposing to send troops to syria. >> we are leaving in 2014, period. >> we agree with the administration on their 2014 transition. >> michael, what did you make of this? >> when i saw paul ryan talk about afghanistan, it was like watching bambi on ice. it's like he had a boy scout capping p trip there once and saw the mountains and
: kelly, thanks very much. in syria today rebels fighting the assad dictatorship posted video of an air defense base that they claim to have captured the uprising against the 42- year-old dictatorship started 14 months ago and has turned neighborhoods into rubble, including those in aleppo, once a city of three million people. pt's hard and hazardous for reporters to get there, but clarissa ward returned to aleppo a assignment for "60 minutes." >> the town is totally different. people have deserted. sertver left here, they're living under bombardment. >> reporter: dr. maher nana left libya 13 years ago. >> people are just expecting to get hit at any time. a reporter: he runs a family practice in delray beach, florida, but now he spends much of his time traveling in and out of syria on behalf of an organization called the syrian support group. its goal is to transform the free syrian army from a disorganized grouping of militias into a coherent force. elt it also works closely with the u.s. government to identify credible rebel officers like colonel oqaidi and report on epeir progress. >
. thank you. >> assad. >> you know, i don't ever want them to look back at me and say, oh, you made me do this, i don't want the guilt on my hands is something that happens to them. saying hey, i push you into this. i will give them the fact that they need to know so they can make their own decisions. that is all we can do. you can never make anyone's mind up for them. if you don't go to college, i do recommend going into the military. and i'm going to say the marines, of course, because i'm biased. [laughter] >> yes, ma'am? >> no, i don't. she said i'm not wearing my mail today. do i ever were? no, i do not. the only time i where it is when i am required to. it's not what i'm about. i am foremost a marine. i'm an american. that is why i wear american flag cufflinks. i will let you know that any man or woman serving, all of these marines, they should be wearing a metal. it is just as much their mettle as it is mine. if you have ever been in situation to receive a the medal of honor, raise your hand. >> [inaudible question] >> yes, sir. >> [inaudible question] i don't go out and speak all
afternoon. >>> and syrian rebels fighting against the regime of assad, declare a victory, they say they shot down aircraft, there was no let-up in the violence as the opposition said 110 people were killed across syria today. >>> and a suicide bomb tearing across a busy market in northwest pakistan today. at least 17 killed, 38 others wounded. officials suspect that the target was a nearby building serving as a base for anti-taliban fighters, the explosion in the busiest time of day in the market. >>> and police in denver say somebody fired a single shot friday into an obama campaign office. no one was hurt, but people were inside the office at the time. nobody got a look at the suspect. but police say they do have a possible lead on a vehicle. >>> and republican mitt romney, mixing political rallies with debate prep this weekend. he has an event later this hour in lebanon, ohio, a few hours ago he went after president obama over the economy at a rally in portsmouth, romney spent the afternoon in a session getting ready for the tuesday's presidential debate. i want to show you something, the
own people. in theory, the assad regime reaches brutal war against its own people, even its territory slips from his grasp. i recently announced major new contributions of humanitarian aid and assistance for the civilian opposition. and we remain committed with their like-minded partners to increase pressure on the regime. and in yemen, where we supported negotiations that eventually achieved a peaceful trend vision, we are working to prevent al qaeda and other extremist from threatening these emerging, fragile, democratic institutions. and prevent them also from finding a safe haven for which to stage new attacks. and when i met with king abdullah of jordan last month, we discussed continuing reforms to move his country towards more democracy and prosperity. so when all of these places and many others, the united states is helping the people of those nations chart their own destinies and realize the full measure of their own human dignity. dignity is a word that means many things to different people and cultures, but it does speak to something universal in all of us. as one egyptian
the supporters of al-assad and they see their backs to the wall and they have to fight to the death or they're going to get killed in other ways? is there any way out of the? >> that's a big problem. basically the regime is just beating the alawite's most horrible stories about the sunnis and what they want to do to them. these people really have their back against the wall and need to be smarter. it's just a doomsday scenario for them. the other minorities, you know, you're talking about christians. many christian groups -- [inaudible] off the top of my head i think it's a alawite% to 12%. it's not a small population. it's pretty big. it's not cohesive because you talk about pre-course. you're talking about searing christians, small numbers of protestants and what not, historians. so these groups support the regime. behrmann burrs are part of the security services. since they are all so scared time. >> this has been a really deep, well reported and he also took a lot of risks to gather this information, so we're very grateful you came and spoke about it. >> the original presented the risk
, assad does need to go. we need to work with moderates in opposition and provide them with military hardware and support financially so they can do battle. the citizens there, they are being slaughtered by the thousands. when it comes to libya, i thought what happened there is unacceptable. i thought the handling of it was unacceptable. we need to have a full and immediate investigation to make sure we find out what happened. more importantly, iran, my opponents said earlier we need a nuanced approach. there is no such thing. there is only one person who will stand with israel. >> another 30 seconds. >> i have three older brothers, all of whom served in the military. my oldest brother was career military. he served in vietnam. i have some sense of not only how tough and capable they are. that is why i believe the best we can do for our military is be very careful and thoughtful about when we ask them to go to war. we need to have clear objectives. we need to know what our plan is and how we plan to get out. >> you can take up to 40. >> we have the greatest fighting force in the hist
